Grilled Baby Back Ribs with an Asian Twist

I was planning  on grilling Greek Style Baby Back Ribs for dinner tonight.  But after seeing Lori’s  (All That Splatters) Asian Lime Ribs I was inspired to try something Asian. The ribs were rubbed with fresh garlic, salt, pepper and the juice from a lemon.   Grilled until tender and then served with an Asian dipping…

Hamburger and Fries

 I picked up some ground sirloin on the way to work yesterday. Dinner didn’t take long to put together. Peeled and hand-cut the fries and got them soaking in cold water. Put the oil on to heat (350° for the first fry). While the oil was heating up I seasoned and formed the burgers. Seasoning…

Tex- Mex Seven Pepper Chili

This is my favourite Chili recipe.  I don’t always have the 7 different peppers but it doesn’t seem to make a difference.  I use this recipe as a guideline and season to suit our taste. Before leaving for work yesterday morning I put a pot of chili on to simmer and a pot of pinto…

This Weeks Bread

Sourdough French Bread  I baked six loaves.  Four Baguettes and two larger loaves.  There are only four in the photos because I gave one away and we cut into one while it was still warm.       I love the crackling sound the bread makes when it comes out of the oven.   The crust…

Spanish Tortilla Breakfast

I let Matthew choose what I should make for breakfast and he picked Spanish Tortilla.  Good choice.   I hadn’t made one in a while.   Even though this is most often served as a Spanish Tapa, we enjoy it for breakfast. Although traditionally cooked on top of the stove, I bake mine in the…

Perogies for Dinner

   Matt has a few days off work so he came up late yesterday afternoon and stayed the night.  I love having our son home. One of Matt’s favourite meals is Perogies  – so that is what we had.   Although a little time consuming they are very easy to make.   Served with fried onions, bacon…

Baked Ham Dinner

 Hams were on sale this week so I picked up a nice big one.  Butt end bone-in smoked ham.   Nothing more simple to cook than  a ham.  Just put it in a roasting pan, cover tightly with foil and place in a 325°F oven for two to four hours depending on the size of the…
